Default Pocket watch.

Got out today for a few hours and found this pocket watch. Got the back off and was able to get some info on it.

Nice find man, those are always a thrill, wondering the brand and if it's gold...

The manufacturers name is in the last pics. Not gold, silver plated.

There are 3 things that thrill me to death any time I find one, even a wrecked up piece of one...don't ask me why, they just do.
Lighters, knives and any kind of clock.
Pocket watches are great because you can track back the history as you did here.
Great find!
